“I posted a thought and I think it bears repeating. What did people like us think when FDR kept getting re-elected?”
My late Grandmother before she passed away this year told me something of those times. She expressed how frustrated her conservative father was with the behavioral of the mob, and foretold exactly how it would end in the deterioration of our republic in to an evermore lawless democracy.
We have been Food Stampeded”
The truth is you are right FDR won so many times because he built up a popular collation of thieves & ideologies who might also be called Democratic voters. Obama has in this election and the past 4 years done much the same thing. People may not agree with most of his radical policy’s but they wont bite the hand that they now depend-upon for substance.
As a whole our once free republic is dead not just in its Constitution(as John Roberts demonstrated again this year) but also in the criminal additude of most(not all) of its people.
There remains however the silverlining of that minority of us(mostly in the south) that still believe in liberty, property rights, and Constitutional conviction. While the north and Federation as a whole may be without hope of salvation
We don’t all have to be suppressed and robed until we have nothing left of our individual sprint & prosperity and little choice but to join the mob of thieves aiming to rob the next bit.
It will take a great deal of work and a momentous political movement but we can leave Sadom and start anew with those men and women still yearning to live free. We can create a new country founded in liberty upon a real Constitution again.
This election is going to be very difficult medicine to swallow. Not the results so much but what they mean.
Take a look at the electoral map today and compare it to a map of the US circa 1862.
